One of Toronto’s biggest celebrity events took over the corner of Queen and John as the 2008 MuchMusic Video Awards brought fans and stars together for a night of music. And rain.
The red carpet was a bit of a wash-out as a torrential downpouring of rain soaked the fans, celebs, and even the assembled media-types trying to get their sound bites and photos.
Inside though the party went on as planned, the booze flowed freely, and in the press room the stars came out to chat with the assembled media. Stopping by during the night were Rihanna, Flo Rida, Girlicious, Rainn Wilson, and of course, New Kids on the Block, just to name a few.
(Blogger Perez Hilton was also in attendence, but I can’t quite bring myself to say anything more about the guy, or how he could be important enough to be called a “celebrity guest.”)
Aside from the performances, and all the other fun, Hedley was the big winner of the night, taking home four awards, including best video, best director, best cinematography, and best rock video.
